The U.S. News and World Report recently announced the Top Ten Best High Schools in America, bringing some excellent news to the Pacific Northwest Community. The International School of Bellevue, Washington, made this list with their five-star curriculum, bountiful student resources, and outstanding test scores. Way to go, Titans!
What does it take to make the top ten schools list? The U.S. News sifted through over 21,000 public high schools in determining the 2013 Best High School Rankings.
International School’s first-class education ranked exceptionally high because of their outstanding instruction including studies in international relations, fine arts, math, and language. This challenging program lasts from grades 6-12, promoting quality learning and educational achievement. International School rocked the charts with a 100% college readiness rating and extraordinary test scores. These results can be traced back to the school’s vision of premium instruction through a student-teacher ratio of 22:1 and incomparable staff support.
What caused International School to stand out among others was their applicable curriculum, integrating the students with the communities of Bellevue and beyond. This school requires each student to complete a weeklong session of external studies. This project widely varies, but altogether teaches students to become responsible members of the human community through interactive service. International School fosters self-confidence and self-discipline in each person, enhancing the already fantastic community of Bellevue.
